About Presenting for MANP

Can you imagine if every person in Maine's nonprofit sector committed to sharing their knowledge and expertise with just one other person regularly? It is an important responsibility for each of us to share with one another to build and strengthen this incredible network of organizations in Maine.
The Maine Association of Nonprofits is Maine’s go-to resource for nonprofits and our mission is to strengthen the leadership, voice & organizational effectiveness of Maine’s nonprofits.
